Bell Summer Theatre Festival

2017 is our 10th anniversary season and we will be bringing the Bell Summer Theatre Festival to our audiences once again. This year we will be opening our season with our hilarious version of the original tale, definitely not Disney's! Snow White and Not The Usual Dwarves by Paul Amato and Directed by Victoria Hudson-Muir. Our second offering, the Merchant of Venice by Shakespeare is an homage to our first play we ever produced for the Bell Summer Theatre Festival, a Shakespearean piece. Directed by Peter Muir and starring Teri Bedard as Shylock. Our final play is entitled Walk in my Moc's. Written by our Native collective and directed by Makelitv Emarthle, it looks at the topic of Missing Indigenous women through Native and Settler eyes when two men switch bodies. Our theatre space is on the grounds of the Bell Homestead National Historic Site with performances at Dajoh Youth and Elder Centre. Admission to all performances is on a pay-what-you-can basis.

The Art of War

As a member of the Lawren Harris Movement, this play is about Brantford's own Lawren Harris who started the Group of Seven. This multi-media production looks at his world during the years of the great war leading up to the birth of the group of seven. Our original production will take place during his birthday celebration going on in Brantford. Performances take place from October 12 to 22nd.
